Hi Bold Bakers!

The weather is starting to heat up in Los Angeles so my husband, Kevin, and I took a day off and headed to Disneyland. YES, we are those grown-ups who don’t have children and have season passes to Disneyland.

What Is Dole Whip?

I have a hit list of Disney’s favorite treats: turkey legs, Mickey Mouse ice cream bar, and caramel corn. On this trip I tried Dole Whip for the first time. Little did I know this is one of Disneyland’s most popular park treats. Dole Whip is a frozen whipped pineapple (similar to soft-serve) that is perfect when it is 90°F out and you have been queuing up most of the day.

Outside of Disneyland, Walt Disney World where you can get the dessert at Aloha Isle inside the Magic Kingdom, and the Dole plantation in Hawaii, there are only a few other places in the world where it is sold. So instead of looking for Dole Whip near you, try this homemade Dole Whip recipe.

While you can enjoy Dole Whip with Dole soft serve, which is a delicious pineapple soft serve, at Disneyland, you can use my recipe and definitely add on some vanilla ice cream. The fresh pineapple flavor goes perfectly with the ice cream.

Dole Whip Ingredients

While I loved this dessert, I discovered that many of the Dole Whip ingredients included stabilizers and lots of things I couldn’t pronounce. It didn’t spoil the fun, but it did make me think I can make something simple and impressive at home.

My Dole Whip recipe, or pineapple whip, is not only a delicious Summer treat, it requires just 2 ingredients. Simply pulse your frozen pineapple and coconut milk in a food processor or blender. You will have to stop a few times to move around the pineapple. When the mix is blended, enjoy it straight away!

Is Dole Whip Vegan?

Absolutely! My recipe uses dairy-free frozen desserts and it’s suitable for vegans.

How To Make Dole Whip

With this pineapple Dole Whip recipe, you don’t have to trek to Disneyland to have a cast member make your favorite frozen treat. There’s no need to make a Dole Whip Disneyland trip or a Dole Whip Disney World vacation just to get this dessert. Just whip up some of your own, theme park-free, in four easy steps (and don’t forget to get the full recipe with measurements, on the page down below).

  1. Place coconut milk and frozen pineapple chunks into the food processor.
  2. Turn on the food processor until it becomes creamy.
  3. Stop and scoop down pineapple.
  4. Blend until pineapple chunks are gone.

Taste And Consistency Of Disney Dole Whip

The end result should be creamy and sweet. Basically, you can expect the perfect summertime drink. And if it tastes a bit chunky at all, just toss the drink back in the food processor.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups (16oz/450g ) small chunks of frozen pineapple
  • 1 cup (8oz/225g) of low-fat coconut milk (or milk of choice, almond, regular)
  • *weight notes at the bottom of recipe

Instructions

  • Place the coconut milk and frozen chunks of pineapple into a food processor or high-powered blender. (The pineapple has to be frozen.)
  • Turn on the food processor and blend until the consistency becomes creamy.
  • You will have to stop several times and scoop down the pineapple.
  • Keep blending until all of the pineapple chunks are gone and the mix is smooth.
  • Enjoy immediately as it is ‘soft serve’ and should be eaten straight away.
  • If you want to freeze a little you can, just know it does freeze solid once frozen and is no longer soft.

Recipe Notes

Normally 16oz = 2 cups, not 4. However, the weight of pineapple is very different from what we normally weigh in a cup — like flour — so both measurements are right. The pineapple is chunky and big and doesn't fill a cup the same way flour would.

I did exactly as stated and used FROZEN pineapple and LOW-FAT coconut milk, and blended in my Vitamix. It was spot-on, the same flavor profile and texture. FANTASTIC!!! After we tasted the first round, we added liquor to turn it into a refreshing cocktail. That too was amazing. I think I want to try adding vanilla bean and mess with other variations, but this recipe is perfect as written!!!!!!

Is this regular coconut milk found by almond milk or is it the canned coconut milk?

Turns out great every time! Since frozen pineapple comes in 10 oz. bags at my store, I use two of them, plus 1-1/4 cups coconut milk. I do usually add a drizzle of honey and a pinch of salt; though neither are necessary, they really wake up all the flavors and provide good balance. A welcome bit of summer any time of the year. Don’t forget the Tajin!

After reading so many different versions of the Disney Dole whip, I liked one that had unsweetened organic coconut milk & frozen pineapple from Trader Joe’ s & added one frozen banana & a pinch of salt! I have a huge Kitchen Aid food processor & it took a long time to get the soft serve consistency. Once done I piped it into cute glass cups . ???????? My granddaughter who is 4 wanted “sprinkles “ on it to make it sweeter???? I would not use the banana next time either. Froze the leftovers in a small metal loaf pan… Read more »
